what is The Emory Nursing Experience?

Continuing education for professional nurses

Through ENE, nurses around the globe have access to evidence-based coursework developed by Emory’s world-class faculty, designed to not only help licensed nurses fulfill their requirements for license renewal, but to further their careers with varying certifications, and continue to provide high-quality patient care.

ENE coursework is provided by the Emory Nursing Professional Development Center (ENPDC), an accredited provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Centers Commission on Accreditation.

ENE Course Catalog

The Emory Nursing Experience course catalog is always growing, with new courses added regularly. Nurses can take advantage of ENE’s Canvas Catalog platform to take advantage of all continuing education courses in one, convenient place. The platform also keeps track of CNE credits, allowing nurses to more easily renew their licenses.

Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Education Program (WOCNEC)

The WOC Nursing Education Program prepares nurses to provide specialty care for patients with acute and chronic wounds, standard and continent ostomy diversions, and fecal and urinary incontinence.


“It’s helped provide me with the confidence to provide the highest level of care and to increase my toolbox of what I’m able to provide for patients. It’s a wonderful steppingstone for anyone interested in advanced practice or other roles in nursing.”
